Moses and King Solomon would have been proud of my dad's track record: 6 wives and 12 children. Who would think that my my father of diminutive height and average looks had had 6 wives. To my knowledge, he wasn't rich nor of superior intelligence. Why did these women fall into his trap?
Indeed death has a funny way of connecting strangers...my father's sad death on May 25, 2006. It was something that did not surprise me, nor made me shed a tear. I guess the only emotion I can name then was the feeling of regrets(ssssss)--an abyss of regrets if there is such. He could have lived his life a little different, not the way I have predicted it. Please don't hate me, or judge me If you can sense indifference. Life is not what it is at a glance. It has a history, a present and a future.
Let me not sidetrack you to the theme of this message. A few days passed that rolled into weeks, then into months---another family surfaced claiming that they are legal children wanting to meet us. I was dumbfounded...What should I say? "Long time no see, welcome to the family!"
Well, death has a funny way of introducing these people to me and their life stories that I have yet to unfold. If death has a funny side, I don't want to ever see it's serious facet. This I am sure, the only thing I want to meet, is contentment in closing my father's book along with his demise, for now let me have my peace in this comforting closure.
